On Wednesday, May 24th Bill was up and getting ready for work by the time I woke up. I ‘dragged’ myself out of bed (6:15 is too early some days!) and went as far as the bottom step to kiss him goodbye. Gibbs and I went back to bed and I was shocked when I next woke to find it was 7:45. It wasn’t even a late night last night!
My ‘in my head’ plan before I got up was to make a tea and then get out to cut some grass. It was to be a much cooler day but I wasn’t prepared for the early morning rain. A couple of hours later, Gibbs and I went for our walk to the corner. On the way back towards home, easterly direction, the cold wind was strong and right in our faces, furthering confirming no lawn cutting this morning.
We hung about inside while I read and then decided to watch an episode of The Marvellous Mrs. Maisle. It was lunch time so I fried some bacon and an egg and then I made up a batch each of chocolate chip and peanut butter cookies. They were easy, from a package I bought in Quartzsite for $1. Gotta love that Ken’s! They turned out great with the only ‘negative’ being that they are sugar loaded. Oh well, we’ll eat them slow. 😊
I cleaned the bathroom, sink and shower drain and swept the main floors. Then, time for more Mrs. Maisle. I got caught up in it and 4 episodes later I forced myself to turn it off for another walk to the mailbox with my little guy. It is another great series and I’m only on Season 3. There was a pile of ‘stuff’ in the mailbox, some interesting flyers, a couple of catalogues and recycling.

The wind was still cool but I expected Bill back soon so took a walk around my gardens. I love to see the daily changes in some of my dependable plantings. Back inside, I turned the tv back on and this time found our NCIS reruns on PrimeVideo/Stack TV. We’ve registered with both and Stack is on a 14-day trial. It seems to be a good one, according to my little brother, Michael. So far, we agree!
Bill was home by 5 and neither Gibbs or I heard him come up the lane. 😊 M called today and asked for my help tomorrow morning so that is good news. He would only do that if he could make payment for my time. For supper, I baked chicken thighs, cooked Kraft dinner and vegetables. The chicken took 35 minutes and they were perfect and crispy. I finally have the hang of it, I think.
Before I close, two birthdays worth mentioning. My oldest step-daughter, Yvonne, is celebrating today as well as our friend, Nancy. Happy Birthday to both of you! I hope it has been a wonderful day. ♥
Thank you for stopping in.
